The Sims 4 Get Famous: Celestial Crown
Effects of Crystals and Fame Quirk Removal with the Crown Object
Mounting a Crystal into the Celestial Crystal Crown in The Sims 4 Get Famous DLC.
An odd object included in The Sims 4 Get Famous Expanion Pack is the Celestial Crystal Crown. Its uses are many, for it takes the power of Collectible Crystals and amplifies them, producing magical effects. Crystals are found on the ground in the world's many neighborhoods and reliably at the end of Jungle Temples. You can also purchase common and uncommon crystals on the computer. Thanks to forum user mousef for helping us get around to playing with this object sooner.
How to Get the Crown in Buy Mode
Buy the Celestial Crown for $100. You'll need Crystals to take advantage of it. Otherwise, it's just a way to get Embarrassed. Personally, I would wear it everywhere.
The Celestial Crystal Crown is found in Objects by Room > Study > Indoor Activities for only $100. The price is low but you must factor in the use of crystals, which are not infinite unless you're buying the commons and uncommons.
How to Use It
10 Million Views! My YouTube channel has grown a lot the last 6 months. I now have over 125 videos on Youtube and am nearing 100k subscribers. I'd like to invite people to check out my content and, if you like what I'm doing, subscribe!
The crystal crown is fairly easy to use, but the effects of crystals are highly varied.
Click crystals in your Sim's inventory with the helmet either on or in their inventory, and you can select 'Mount crystal'. Wear the helmet by clicking it and selecting the appropriate command. Selecting your Sim, you can get a menu for the crystal or click it in the inventory to remove the helmet or remove a crystal.
When a crystal is socketed, the effects are immediate. Your Sim will get a boost to career or skill gains, or else their needs will be raised to max so long as the crystal lasts. Crystals tend to last about 4 hours total but it's clearly a powerful item.
Drawbacks: There is a caveat, however, in that your Sim will get a +1 Embarrassed moodlet for 4 hours upon wearing the helmet, "fashion faux pas". Not too bad if they're happy already ,but enough to ruin their performance if they are not. The Shameless reward for 2,000 Satisfaction will allow you to use the helmet without getting Embarrassed.
Crown Indicator Light
Mousing over Crystals in your Sim's inventory, you can see the current power level. They go high, medium, and low. When you are wearing the helmet, it also displays the same information via the lights on the side:
Crystal at high, medium, low, and broken state. When a crystal breaks, it will take a chunk out of one of your Sim's motives (bladder, hygiene, etc.)
When you have a rare crystal socketed and your Celebrity has a Quirk, you can use the crystal crown to remove it. This will sacrifice the rare crystal but the quirk slot will go back to blank. You'll get another quirk soon enough, but maybe one that doesn't bother you so much.
Note that when motives fill, they are simply set at 100. When the effect is removed, they'll go back part way to where they were before you used the filling effect. Use these effects to extend your Sim's active time and deal with needs later. Great for a quick performance if your needs are low and you're in a rush.
